HelloFresh Canada Review: Mexican Spiced Cheeseburger
Today we are having a peek at one of the three HelloFresh Canada recipes we received last week. It was a bit of a diet splurge for me personally, but it was SO worth it! There’s just something about Summer and Cheeseburgers. They go together like PB & J, and it just doesn’t feel like Summer until I sit down and enjoy a big ol’ messy burger…..and a beer:)

Mexican Spiced Cheeseburger with Beyond Meat®
You won’t believe it’s not meat! Our Mexican Spiced Beyond Meat® Cheeseburger encompasses all your favourite taco flavours, on a burger! Pickled jalapeños, cilantro, guac, crema and cheese pile up on these perfect plant-based patties. Tortilla chips are the ideal crunchy sidekick.
- 2 unit Beyond Meat®
- 2 unit Artisan Bun
- 1 unit Jalapeño
- 1 unit Avocado
- 85 g Tortilla Chips
- 1 unit Lime
- 2 tbsp White Wine Vinegar
- ¼ cup Cheddar Cheese, shredded
- 80 g Roma Tomato
- ½ tbsp Mexican Seasoning
- 6 tbsp Sour Cream
- 7 g Cilantro
Before starting, preheat the oven to 450°F. Wash and dry all produce.
Cut tomato into 1/4-inch pieces. Zest, then juice the lime. Roughly chop cilantro. Peel, pit then cut avocados into 1-inch pieces. Thinly slice the jalapeños. (NOTE: We suggest using gloves when prepping jalapeños!)
Heat a small pot over medium heat. When hot, add sliced jalapeño, vinegar, 2 tbsp lime juice, 1 tbsp water and 1 tsp sugar (dbl all for 4 ppl). Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender-crisp, 2-3 min. Transfer jalapeño, along with pickling liquid, to a small bowl. Set aside in the fridge.
Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat. When hot, add 1 tsp oil (dbl for 4 ppl), then Beyond Meat® patties. Pan-fry, until golden-brown, 3-4 min per side.**
Transfer patties to one side of a baking sheet. Sprinkle 1 tsp Mexican Seasoning (dbl for 4 ppl) over both sides of patties. Halve buns and arrange them cut-side up on the other side of the baking sheet. Sprinkle cheese over top buns. Toast buns and patties in the middle of the oven, until cheese is melted and buns are golden-brown, 4-5 min.
Using a masher, mash together avocado and 1 tbsp lime juice (dbl for 4 ppl) in a large bowl, until smooth. Add tomatoes and half the cilantro. Season with salt and pepper, then stir to combine. Stir together sour cream, 1 tsp Mexican Seasoning, 1 tsp lime zest (db bothl for 4 ppl) and remaining lime juice in another small bowl. Season with salt and pepper.
Top each bottom buns with Beyond Meat® patties, pickled jalapenos, 1 tbsp gauc, 1 tbsp crema and remaining cilantro. Top with top buns. Divide burgers and tortilla chips between plates. Serve remaining guac and crema on the side, for dipping.
Oh my…..these Mexican Spiced HelloFresh Canada Burgers were SO good! So messy, and so not vegan friendly, but SO worth it! To date I have loved all of the Beyond Meat recipes we have received in our HelloFresh Canada boxes, and this one was no exception. It’s not something we eat on a regular basis, but more as a treat every now and then. These burgers were the perfect mixture of flavourful patty, melty cheese, grilled buns and messy toppings. Thanks to this yummy recipe it officially feels like Summer!
